What Is a Premises Liability Claim?
A premises liability claim is a type of civil lawsuit an accident victim can bring against the owner or controller of a property that contains a dangerous defect. If a property defect the landowner reasonably should have fixed caused the accident, the victim may have the right to file a claim for damages. The owner’s reasonable degree of care changes according to the type of visitor on the property.
- Invitee. Duties include monitoring and inspecting the property for any hazards, repairing known defects, and warning visitors of existing risks that exist on the property.
- Licensee. Duties include repairing known defects and posting warnings about potential dangers, but do not include inspecting the property prior to a visit.
- Trespasser. The owner owes a trespasser no duties of care, other than a duty not to intentionally cause harm. The only exception is if the trespasser is a child.
Understanding which type of visitor you were at the time of your accident may take help from a San Antonio premises liability attorney. It will depend on why you entered the property and whether you had the owner’s permission to do so. Identifying the property owner’s duties of care to you is one of the necessary steps toward obtaining compensation for damages.
